It's not about the easy way out. It's about right and wrong and putting your foot down for what is right. It's about putting an end to frivilous lawsuits by NOT SETTLING. The reason there are so many suits is because people who commit fraud know they can make easy money from companies who settle. Slip and fall in a grocery store? Just threaten to sue and you can settle for $8,500 -- even if you faked your own fall! I've worked for many a company who settle case...
Actually, they do what you "pay them through the nose" to do. No one is a winner in protracted court cases or even in settlements. The lawyers always win, all the time. What we need is a lawyer quota. The number of lawyers can never exceed a preset number according to the general population. Trying to be a lawyer when the quota was exceeded? Tough, switch majors. A quota that cuts the current number by 1/5th would be about right. And making it much harder, if not...
Amen to that. The world has gone nuts over these silly software patents. Ironically, such patents kill "creativity" in the marketplace.
No. There are no plans for the UK, Canada or any other country. Apple is fed up with the international market. Tomorrow, Steve Jobs will announce that all Mac sales outside the US will be halted, and Apple will officially no longer support any nationality other than red-blooded Americans who have a flag waving outside their front door. Jobs will go a step further and demand that all iPod users outside the US immediately return their equipment to Apple and pay for...
That's precisely what I've been trying to argue in this thread, albeit with little success and proponents of "our American right to sue" keep popping up!
The stock is going up a tad due to the glowing financial report that was just released. But the stock will drop soon due to the news about Phil Schiller's stock sale (as AAPL always has fallen shortly after the release of such news). As if the $8m Schiller has already made on past sales wasn't enough! But one must wonder why Phil Schiller would buy now. He is either preparing to leave Apple or he doesn't have any long term faith in the stock! As far as my own...
Everyone complained the same way in the late 90's when Apple hit $13 a share. Then a few years later when AAPL was flying high, those same folks moaned, "We shoulda bought at $13." I would encourage everyone to buy $5,000 worth of AAPL now. If half the population of the US did this, I would be able to rack in a nice profit. Seriously, a lot of us bought based on what this STUPID analysts have said. And sadly, most of the most ridiculous projections of stock price (e.g.,...
I completely agree with you Dave. I've been an Apple shareholder since 1998. Haven't sold yet. I simply take issue with all the fanatical analyst news posted here even though the stock has sunk day by day since the first part of this year.
Taxes rates are beside the point in my mind. Dividends are to be paid out at some point because it is the right thing to do. If there are problems with the tax rate, just vote for a political party that stands on cutting taxes and empowering the citizen, rather than vote for tax-and-spend politicians.
Dividends are for "losers." Hmmm.Sounds as if you've judged Apple already and are prepared to read the verdict. I myself, as a substantial AAPL shareholder, wish to think differently on the matter. Specifically, I still don't see a reason to sue, especially not until the exectives being targetted have been given sufficient changes to comment on the matter.
